Winter is here!

We woke up today to about 4 new inches of snow. It is very beautiful outside, I am glad that I don't have to go anywhere today. Andy had to work today, which is a blessing but also a bummer. We are very blessed that he has a job that gives him regular hours but we were trying to make it down to California this weekend for Andy's brother Conner's farewell talk. We are pretty disapointed we can't but atleast we will get to see him one more time before he leaves in the beginning of December.

Lately I have been able to feel our little girl moving around and kicking a lot more. She usually has regular "kicking fits" at around 10 in the morning and 5 at night. Its really interesting. She loves to stretch and push her little feet up against my abdomen. She is a healthy, growing baby! We are really excited for her to be a part of our family in end of March.

Lately I have been on a sewing kick. I have lots of projects that I want to make for our little girl. I have recently made a diaper pouch to go in my purse/diaper bag. It is suppose to hold 2-3 toddler sized diapers and a travel wipes container.

I made it out of canvas and cotton. The canvas was kind of a pain to work with because it is so stiff but I am glad I did. I really like the way it turned out.
I also made a set of rag quilt numbers for Katelyn to play with we she gets older.

I thought that they are really cute and I had some scraps so I went ahead and made them. I want to make a set of letters too, I just don't have enough scraps at the moment.

The next projects on my list are to make a really cute dress for katelyn, ribbon flowers and a tote bag.

I think that we are going to start decorating for christmas today, a little early I think but still way fun. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and safe travels this next week!

21 weeks

We have been having fun in Idaho. It has snowed I think every day this past week...yuck! Andy has a job with Old navy and enjoys it except for the fact that it is a 45 minute commute. We are really excited for our little baby girl. She is getting bigger and I can feel her moving alot more. She is a healthy little baby which we are really happy about. This is what my bump looks like at 21 weeks and 4 days.

Lately I have been in the "nesting" mode. I really want to sew lately. I have been looking through different books and blogs getting Ideas of things that I can make for our little girl, her nursery and just our home in general. My back has been kind of bothering me lately and Andy suggested that I make a heating pad to put on my back. This is what I came up with.
It is filled with rice and it gets put in the microwave for 90 seconds. It works miracles!
I would love to put this quote in Katelyn's room.

I also love the colors of this mobile and the butterflies on the wall.

I would also love to make one of these to go in my diaper bag/purse.
I found how to make them at . They look pretty simple and really cute at the same time.

Anyways hope everyone is having a great November. I can't wait for the Holidays!

Its a Girl!!

We went to the doctor today and had an ultrasound!! We found out that it is a little girl. We got to see lots of cool shots of our baby. Everything looks great! Two little feet, two little hands and everything in between. We didn't get to see her face because she was being stuborn and wouldn't move. We are both really, really excited!!
